imagine is devoid of anything really. it is pretty quiet out there. starting to build up little bit of moisture in the atmosphere, see stormy weather just behind the lettering of storm scan3 there, that will likely stay out of the philadelphia's hair, out of the jersey shore's hair, but if you you are up toward the poconos, maybe in through central pa i wouldn't be surprised if you saw spotty shower or storm later in the day. snapshot, actually, rather live view for you here, outside whitfield elementary school in west lawn, pa, outside of reading, 76 degrees, off to warm start. may drop another agree or so before the sun officially comes up. that happens in a half hour. so losing time on that. but, that doesn't mean we won't be warming up easily. current wind speed not so much an issue. look at the aero. all out of the south, with the southerly flow, we have the air mass coming from nice warm place. and that's going to help of course allow us to heat up easily. so we start with some sun, keep the sun in fact all day, see few more clouds as the day progresses but call this day one, our next heatwave,
